Enjoy a holiday in Hervey Bay, remember the whales are arriving so why don't you and your family? Maybe they've heard about my fan forced wood fire that keeps the house warm and cozy on cold winter nights, and the sea breezes and airconditioner are there for summer.
NOTE: The security deposit is NOT collected up-front upon booking a reservation.
A clean and comfortable older home, with large family dining area, lounge with fan forced wood burning heater which is being enjoyed by my guests this winter. New kitchen, 3 bedrooms, ensuite, plus a large bathroom with separate toilet and ceiling fans in all rooms. There is a pool and the house is less than a kilometer from the beach! With secure garaging for 2 cars, 2 flat screen TVs, and a bbq area with a shade sail beside the pool. The 2 queen beds, 1 single, 1 x 2 single bunks and a cot are all available. All are made up ready for your use and extra linen and towels, at no extra cost. Also a dry food pantry and herb garden (seasonal) are there for your enjoyment. So have a pleasant stay.
Hervey Bay is fantastic for people with bikes as there are many bike paths and in fact there is an 18km coastal ride, with plenty of free BBQ areas and picnic spots along the foreshore. My home is an excellent base for many daily activities within the region and overnight stays on Fraser Island. There are many cafes and restaurants, open day and night of all cuisines.
The airport is near by and you can take a shuttle bus into the centre of town. Otherwise I recommend hiring a car from the airport and dropping it off as you leave.
Fishing is very popular in this area, and people have great success at it! It is easy to organize a trip to Fraser Island, and they can pick you up at the door.
Also beach fishing and good catches can be made from the right spots and tides, and now summer whiting are biting and I can help you with this information. So contact me and I'll welcome you to my home and Hervey Bay.

This is a private home, and it's very comfortable and easy to live in.
Due to past guests who haven't respected my rules regarding dogs,
ie NOT swimming in the POOL, and NOT sleeping INSIDE, I will no longer
accept any dogs in fairness to future guests.
As a house sitter who has cared for others homes and pets for over 10 years I feel that pets are happiest when left in their own routines, rather than taken on holiday.
It's also interesting to note that most house sitters are FREE
I'd be pleased if you treated my home as you would your own and leave everything as you find them.
Past smokers have now caused me to say NO to smokers
It would be better if your pets don't come, especially as past guests have
broken my rules by letting their dogs swim in the pool and sleep indoors, when asked not to, plus the gates have open rails and not road safe
I have provided an outside gas fired barbecue for the grilling of all meat and would prefer that it was used.
Please use the air conditioner with respect the listed instructions.
All handbooks for appliances are in the bottom drawer in the kitchen if you are unsure of their workings .
Please enjoy the herb garden, sorry not available this summer
I look forward to welcoming you to my home for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday
Hi I am retired and a housesitter in Hervey Bay, so allowing me to holiday let my own home to families who enjoy a quiet holiday.
I do NOT allow parties in my home and even though one guest has done this I know that 99.9% of Airbnb guests do respect the homes they are staying in it only takes that one to spoil it for others. Please allow me to build my trust in Airbnb guests by being a respectful guest.
Hervey Bay has lots to offer visitors just a boat ride to Fraser Island, beaches, bike tracks, shops, restaurants or the peace and quiet that a regional town can offer
